That’s when her priorities on family came into focus. She explained that she realized her children needed her in ‘the stands and on the sidelines,’ while her husband needed time to reconnect with her.
The TV personality will also continue to be a part of the GMA family. ABC News President James Goldston wrote in a memo to his staff that Faris would take on a new role with them in the fall.
He said she was ‘expanding her reporting portfolio to cover the most consequential stories of the day, help lead the charge on breaking news and focus on key bookings’
